Birchbox May 2016 Review

Birchbox May 2016 Review

Birchbox is $10.00/month and they send five sample beauty and skin care products, every month.  Subscribers can now upgrade to a $30.00 box.  The $30.00 box will contain 2 full size beauty or skin care products, along with the five usual products.

When you sign up, you fill out a profile, so Birchbox can customize your box to your preferences.  There is a regular monthly box and they also have guest editor boxes. Birchbox releases spoilers and a full reveal of the guest editor boxes, so you will know which box to choose.  I actually have two Birchbox subscriptions.  This is the box for my newest account.

Here is the details about the Birchbox Point System

For every 100 points you earn, you get $10.00 to spend in the shop. There are lots of ways to earn points too!

1.  Subscribe and use the code SUBSCRIBENOW50 to get 50 points ($5.00) to spend in the online store.

2.  Review Your Products: You get 10 points for every sample review you complete.  Each box contains 4-5 products, so that is around $5.00 in points you can earn monthly!  This makes the box $5.00 a month.  You can use this link to sign up.

3.  Shop!: For every dollar you spend in the Birchbox Store, you earn 1 point for each dollar spent on full-size products in the Birchbox Shop.

4.  Refer Your Friends: For every friend you refer to Birchbox, you will earn 50 points


Birchbox always comes in a big pink box.


The box was a partnership with Keds and they made the box to look like it's been painted.


This box was all about protecting your skin

information card

The back of the welcome card had the information card, which had a list of everything in the box.

Davines OI All in One Milk

Davines OI All in One Milk $11.11 The Davines Ol All in One Milk is designed to protect hair from heat styling, add volume shine and detangle your hair. As a bonus, there were samples of sulfate free shampoo and conditioner included in the box.

Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel - Body

Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel – Body $7.50 I have received this in previous boxes and I really enjoyed it.  This is a peel you can put on various parts of your body to have softer skin.  This is great to use to get ready for summer.

ModelCo Lip Lacquer in Viva

ModelCo Lip Lacquer in Viva $5.33 This gloss is a pretty pale pink, with a hint of peach.  This regularly comes three pack, so I am not sure if subscribers received different colors.  This wasn't sticky at all and it had a nice color.


This is a swatch of the gloss.

COOLA and MDSolarSciences

COOLA® Mineral SPF 30 Daydreamâ„¢ Makeup Primer  $14.00 I always use a primer when I wear makeup (my go to is Smashbox).  This is my expensive than my primer, but if it works,  I will buy more from the Birchbox shop.  Primers are a great way to have your makeup stay set.

MDSolarSciencesâ„¢ Mineral Moisture Defense Body Broad Spectrum SPF 50 $2.44 Everyone received a SPF in their box,  This has a 50 spf and also works to add moisture to your skin.


Final Thought: This box had a total value of $40.38.  This box had a great value for a $10.00 box.  I love the gloss and I am going to pick up the trio from the Birchbox store.  While I normally don't like hair products in boxes, I am going to try out the leave in treatment.  If you want to subscribe, use the code PIXIPALETTE to get a free Pixi By Petra Eyeshadow Palette.  Instead of a free product, you can use the code SUBSCRIBENOW50 to get 50 points ($5.00) to spend in the online store.
